Thankful Thursday

Good morning!

Today I am thankful for breakfasts with Ina.

Usually there is only time to throw an apple and a cheese stick in her bowl and run out the door, but yesterday we sat down and ate.  Well I ate.  She looked at me like I was a crazy person after she turned her nose up to yogurt, which used to be one of her favorites.

I am thankful that I finally sent out my passport application.

This task has been on my to-do list for a long time now, but I am always missing one of the many elements.  For the past two days, I have been lacking an envelope.  Yesh.  It felt so good to throw that in the mailbox.

I am thankful that I had the time and energy to run yesterday while dinner was in the oven and Ina was taking a bath.

My run was hot and slow, but it is over.  Whew.

I am thankful for local meat and dinner with Dan’s parents and grandma.

So much happens at the dinner table.

I am thankful that Ina doesn’t know what comes after 19.

That girl.

I am thankful that after Ina went to bed with her grandparents, Dan and I stayed up to watch the Royals score 6 runs in one inning and we cheered and clapped as loud as we wanted to.  

I am so very thankful for this life that God has given me.  I better do something useful with it, huh?

What are you thankful for?
